“For me, art making is very much about the visual experience and its effect on our being. In these tumultuous times I find myself hungry for more quiet reflection and respite and my work has been affected by this want. My interest lies in telling and sharing the quiet stories of my private visual discoveries.” - Joshua Huyser
